HET Brown Bag Seminar | N=1 SCFTs From M5 Branes | Speaker: Nikolay Bobev (Stonybrook)

3481 Randall (Oskar Klein Conference Room)

Speaker: Nikolay Bobev (Stonybrook)

Abstract: In this talk I will describe an infinite family of new N=1 AdS_5/CFT_4 dual pairs which arise from M5-branes wrapping Riemann surfaces in Calabi-Yau threefolds. I will present the relevant M5-brane construction, the supergravity solutions dual to the SCFTs at large N, as well as a purely four-dimensional field theory realization of these field theories.
